  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and grated (Approximately 1 pound)
  • 1 medium onion, grated
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil for frying


  1. Begin by placing the grated potatoes, grated onion, whisked egg, all-purpose flour, salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika in a big bowl. Stir them until they’re thoroughly combined.
  2. Preheat your skillet over a medium flame, then pour in the vegetable oil.
  3. Once the oil is hot, take spoonfuls of the potato mixture and drop them into the oil. Press each heap gently with a spatula to flatten it into a fritter.
  4. Allow the fritters to sizzle for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. You’ll know they’re done when they turn a beautiful golden brown color and are cooked all the way through. source: Ineskohl.info
  5. After frying, use a slotted spoon to lift the fritters out of the skillet and let them drain on paper towels. Serve them while they’re still hot for the best taste.


  • To keep your fritters from clinging to the skillet, ensure your oil is adequately heated before adding the potato mixture.
  • If your fritters seem overly moist and are hard to fry or start falling apart, try draining your grated potatoes and onion in a colander for about 10 minutes to get rid of any excess water.
  • Feel free to experiment by adding more ingredients to the fritters like diced chives, grated cheese, or crispy bacon bits.
  • – Serve the fritters with your choice of dipping sauce. They pair well with sour cream, ketchup, or even applesauce.

Get ready to dazzle your taste buds with these crispy and savory potato fritters. Enjoy cooking!
